Talk about rental goals: this grand Park Slope mansion, just outside of Prospect Park, is chock full of historic details and could be yours for $29,000 a month. Located at 21 Prospect Park West, it is a Renaissance Revival home designed by the Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris. It’s been restored to its single-family grandeur, with over 7,000 square feet (and eight bedrooms!) practically dripping with features like stained glass, carved woodwork and marble fireplaces. Oh yeah, and there’s a diner inside that looks straight out of Happy Days.

Walking into the parlor floor you enter a grand galleria, complete with a sitting room with direct views of Prospect Park through arched windows. Overlooking the galleria is an internal second floor balcony, which completely surrounds the galleria to create a double-height exposure below and entertaining space on both floors. Both floors are completely decked out with carved wood everywhere.

The east wing of the second floor galleria opens to a wood-paneled library lined with bookshelves. The doors open out onto views of Prospect Park.

Off the second floor of the home is this charming terrace space. There’s also a roof deck on the fifth floor.

The owners have even managed to integrate carved wood into the modest kitchen space.

The master bedroom, on the third floor, is totally luxurious: views out to Prospect Park, a sitting room inside the walk-in closet, a marble-encased soaking tub and steam shower.

More bedrooms are located on the fourth floor–there are eight in total.

A house like this is definitely going to come with some quirks. Like stained glass in the bathroom.

But the biggest quirk is this diner that looks straight out of the 1950s. This is no joke: this insanely historic house comes with its own Happy Days diner. It doesn’t quite go with the prewar decor, but it’s a novelty nonetheless.
